The DynamicTMN® CMIP Agent SDK provides a set of high-level Java APIs and development tools which greatly simplify the task of developing Java-based, platform-independent Common Management Information Protocol (CMIP) agent applications for use in:

  • telecom equipment agents
  • north bound interfaces (NBI)
  • element management systems (EMS)
  • trouble administration gateways
  • electronic bonding gateways
  • local number portability (LNP) applications
  • alarm/fault consolidators
  • subnetwork topology agents
  • protocol mediators and Q-adaptors
  • and many more...

By using the CMIP agent toolkit's high-level GDMO agent API, CMIS messaging API and ASN.1 API, CMIP network management projects that previously required large teams of experienced CMIP developers can now be completed in a fraction of the time by only a few Java developers with little or no CMIP background. This results in across the board reduction in costs on everything from development license fees to software development resource costs.

Also, since the toolkit is entirely Java-based, you can now enjoy all the benefits of platform independence such as:

  • choice of hardware platform (Intel, Sun, HP, IBM, Apple, etc)
  • choice of operating system (Linux, Windows, HP-UX, Solarix, AIX, etc.)
  • choice of deployment (standlone, web-app, EJB, legacy integration, etc.)
